Reglazing is a great, budget-friendly option and a fun project to DIY. The process involves using an epoxy or resin coat over the old tiles. When cured, it has a porcelain-like finish. However, not every tile is a candidate for reglazing — it’s important to note that it won’t fix cracked, chipped, or gouged tiles, so the tile you reglaze should be in good condition. Reglazing also works best on ceramic and porcelain tile rather than materials like glass or natural stone. While Farr reglazed the tile on the bathroom walls, you can also reglaze the tile in the shower and on the floor to give it a new look.
The process of reglazing tile involves sanding and cleaning the tile before applying the epoxy resin with a paint roller. If you’re going to do the project yourself, good ventilation is essential, so open all the windows and use fans to remove the fumes. You should also wear a P100 respirator for extra protection. Though this is a relatively simple DIY, the product can be tricky to work with, so hiring a professional will often lead to the best and smoothest results.
